The anonymous author, Frederick Malkin (1802-1830) was the second son of Benjamin Heath Malkin, the schoolmaster and promoter of William Blake. Despite the generic title this is an original work, in fact unusually so for something produced to be an affordable text for the general public (text in double-columns, etc.). Malkin died young, with this being his only published work.
